Kuba is 21 now!!!

Oh my Goodness, how the time flies. My gorgeous nephew and God Son turned 21 on 17 January. I still remember when he was born and his mother called him a little turtle because he had a wrinkly neck, lol.

Below is the card I made for him, Claudine Hellmuth style.

Gaye's birthday and birthday art

Today is my friend Gaye's birthday and yesterday Marlene and I caught up with her for a morning tea. It was a fun celebration with lovely company, food, art and presents.

The Birthday Girl with her presents:

This is a house I made for Gaye. I used a marble stand which I bought at my favourite shop - the Reverse Garbage. I also used the charms I bought at Michael's in New York (I love that shop too and I wish we had it in Australia) to hang off the house.

OMG - I won a piece of art by Beth Billups

I entered a draw on Beth's blog tangled sky studio and I won, I can't believe this as I never win anything in numerous blog giveaway entries I participate in all the time.

Here is my name drawn:

And this is the most beautiful piece of encaustic art which I won and which will be coming my way from US shortly (it is a 3.5"x5" block painting):

I am so lucky, what a great start to 2012. Beth is an amazing artist who I admire greatly. More stuff can be seen on her website. Thank you Beth, you made my day and the year!
